Bio:

A BSc Hons Sports & Exercise Science Graduate from the University of Ulster, Catriona has a lifelong passion for health and fitness and involvement in sport, having played Gaelic football for over 20 years.

It was in the latter stages of her sporting career (in her 30’s) that she discovered Pilates, its benefits enabling her to continue to compete for several years at the highest level.

Inspired by her personal experience of Pilates and its benefits, Catriona qualified as a Pilates instructor in 2013. Since then she has had the opportunity to work with clients of all age groups, from 6-65, and with athletes from a range of different sports, including Gaelic Football, Soccer, Running and Cycling.

The requirements of many of her clients are to stay injury free and to compete at the highest possible level – motivating her to ensure that she delivers an effective and demonstrably goal-oriented programme. A programme that assists them in achieving their goals.

Catriona is also a physical literacy specialist coach, working with Key Stage 1 children within the school setting. For her one of the most enjoyable aspects of working with children is the combination of challenging ourselves to the limit without taking ourselves too seriously – an approach that she has also seen pay dividends in her Pilates classes.

In her spare time she enjoys a good strum on the guitar and is still trying to master the F chord.
